at the level of the national security agency and the way the protocols are set up at this point, that's sort of where the line of information would stop. there isn't necessarily a reason why they would tell the white house there's no protocol that insists that they do. and in the case of the monitoring the chancellor merkel and some 35 other leaders, nsa hadn't brought it to the white house's attention. >> the dates are significant because the monitoring dates go back to 2002 on angela merkel, which also would explain from the officials quoted here why the president would not be brought into the loop on this. as bizarre as that sounds to some people. >> at what level it sounds a little odd. you could see a situation where a program starts as far back as 2002 and keeps -- nsa is a very large organization with incredibly monitoring surveillance programs and these things kind of have -- unless someone puts a stop to them. >> many are processing what this means to the world and the u.s. reputation as we know european leaders are quite angry over these revelations. i want to play with european pa
for the european union after published reports suggested the national security agency collected data from 60 million phone calls in spain across a 30-day period last year. >> translator: for the moment spain has no formal grounds to believe there was a case of spying in our country. nevertheless, the magnitude of this information which was revealed brought us to request immediately the corresponding clarifications. >> reporter: meantime the german tabloid reported nsa chief, jen keith alexander, personally briefed president obama in 2010 on his agency's targeting of the cell phone of german chancellor angela merkel. the spokesperson said general alexander did not discuss with president obama in 2010 an alleged foreign intelligence operation involving german chancellor merkel, nor has he ever discussed allegationed operations involving merkel. news reports claiming otherwise are not true. reported, mr. obama was kept in the dark about the merkel surveillance for nearly five years until this summer when he ordered it stopped. >> the president didn't know about -- >> reporter: general alexander

following a bashlash over reports the national security agency has tracked phone calls of dozens of world leaders. >> we recognize there need to be additional constraints how we gather and use intelligence. and it's in the context of this dynamic technology environment that the president has directed us to review our surveillance capabilities. >> one report from a german tabloid indicated that president obama knew that the nsa was tapping the phone of the german chance explore he allowed it to continue, again, german tabloid, a spokeswoman for the agency says that is simply not true. and "the wall street journal" reports the nsa stop monitoring chancellor merkel and other leaders after a white house review uncovered the operations. "the wall street journal" again. meanwhile, a state department spokeswoman says our ambassador to spain met with officials there to discuss reports that the nsa tracked more than 60 million phone calls in that country in one month. dana perino was the press secretary under george w. bush, the 43rd, president bush, 43, and this was happening under bush 43rd. >>
around the world will be making their own decisions. the director of the national security agency has been before a congressional committee this week taking direct questions about how his department collects intelligence. >> journalists who published snowden's leaked documents told cnn he does not believe general keith alexander when he insists the nsa is following rules. >> he's being very specific and talking particularly about the reports of earlier this week, tens of millions of phone calls in france and spain, and he said it's completely false. what is your reaction to that? >> notice what he did not off, any evidence for the truth of what he's saying this is, remember, an agency that is extremely beleaguered in the middle of an intense scandal, both at home and abroad. it is an agency whose top officials have a record of lying to the congress and to the american people through the media, including general alexander. and these claims, which i was astonished to watch journalists yesterday go on television and treat as though they were the gospel are accusations made without eviden

better. i apologize. i'm accountable for you for fixing these problems. >> and the national security agency pushing back against allegations that it penetrated google and yahoo! data centers while european you're pea a eur against u.s. claims that everybody spies. you're in the situation room. sebelius got a drilling today. president obama got out of town. he just gave a spirited defense of his health care law this boston where former rival mitt romney signed a very similar and successful massachusetts law less than a decade ago. our chief congressional correspondent dana bash is standing by on capitol hill, but let's begin our coverage with our chief white house correspondent jim acosta. the president said he's responsible for obama care's flaws, but he also said that romney care also had a slow start. >> reporter: that's right. as you said, the president traveled up to boston to make those comparisons between his health care plan and mitt romney's health care plan. he was talking about the bumpy rollout. there were some bumps, but not as many in romney care. but there was another m
't he know? the larger question is do we have an out of control national security agency? do we have a secret government in the shadows of government that the president of the united states and elected official doesn't know about. >> so we are feeding from the south of france. hear groaning. so, mika, thank you so much for showing up and you just pop right in. god knows we need somebody defending me this morning given all the things going on. >> okay. couple of things. stwargt the bush administration so i guess you could ask if president bush knew too and put those questions to him as well. >> what started in the bush administration. >> this monitoring of phone calls. >> of foreign leaders. >> if i may -- oh, wait dew point me to talk. i can go back to the south of france. >> i want you to educate what report suggests that george w. bush tapped the phones of world leaders? >> when did this start? >> four or five years ago. >> 2002. >> 2002. >> the tapping of foreign leaders. >> yes. so you have to apply the same questions to president bush, first of all, whether they do or do not kn
. those professionals in the national security agency and elsewhere in the intelligence community are focused on one thing only, keeping americans safe and troops and diplomats abroad safe and keeping our allies safe. we need talent across the board. there's no question these revelations have caused some tensions in our relationships but i think the fundamental fact that the american people need to know is the national security agency is focused on foreign intelligence targets, those individuals and groups out there in the world who have as their primary focus doing harm to the american people, doing harm to our allies and they do a great job every day. >> isn't leadership on that issue then for the president to push off all of these attacks about spying and who we're spying on and whether it's right, if it's so important especially in a post 9/11 world, isn't the strength of leadership saying we spy, you may not like it, that's how it works. we're not going to reveal too much about this. think about it in the next election if you don't like it. the idea reviewing plans the presid

of attention. cnn's chief national security correspondent jim sciutto is in washington. a lot of double negatives we're talking about here. >> no question. it is interesting to hear their defense. they're denying they spy on the servers but not the links of the servers. picture cables under the ocean carrying bits of data. it's all been revealed by an interesting document stolen by snowden. explain in this simple hand sketched drawing, complete with a smiley face, may be a newly disclosed way the nsa is monitoring the internet. "the washington post" citing documents stolen and released by edward snowden reports the intelligence agency tapped into the communications link 1u67 as undersea cables connecting yahoo! and google data centers around the world. >> reporter: as did a written statement from the nsa to cnn saying the assertion that we collect vast quantities of u.s. persons data from this type of collection is not true. but the nsa did not deny it accesses links between the service or communications of foreigners carried on those links. reaction from google and yahoo! was swift and
